I recently purchased this guitar at a local music store it was origionaly priced at 649 but I talked them down to 540.

The thing i like most about this guitar (and everyone should like most about the guitar they buy) is the tone I get. I have a Stratocaster and the tone from the Telecaster is entirely different. You can play any chords and they will sound excelent not like on strats ware it can sound a little to cluttered, if that makes sense. I also like the vintage styling of the guitar, and the action on it is fast. And thats the way I like it.

This is just what I like about the instrument but I own it so im probly parcial to it.

The only thing I don't like about the guitar is that the sadles on the bridge don't have groves for the strings to sit in. Thus making bends harder then usual. And playing on .12s I need all the help i can get if you know what i mean.

Im not sure how to answer this. its a fender from mexico so the production process isn't that bad, nothing like an americian tho. No visible flaws or anything.

This guitar is an amazing thing to play. You hardly have to play it seems to almost play itself. It fits me like a dream and looks good too. It gives that clasic muddy waters or merle haggard tone.
